Giraffe Bread

 Hello! Good morning everybody! Do you still remember me?
Well, today, I am going to present to you my 'look alike' bread!

Giraffe Bread
(Recipe adapted & modify from My Little Space)    

Bread dough:
250g  bread flour
1 Tbsp Kinako
170ml water
1 tsp  yeast
1/2 Tbsp  sugar
1/2 tsp  salt
1 tsp oil 

Butter, cut into cubes
Topping crust:
90ml  warm water
100g  rice flour
1/2 Tbsp  yeast
1/4 tsp  salt
1 Tbsp  sugar                        
1 Tbsp  corn oil
*Stir all ingredients together & mix to combine, then set aside to rest for 30mins 

Method : 
1. Combine all dry ingredients into a big bowl, then slowly stir in water & oil to form a soft dough. Set aside to rest for 30mins.
2. Punch out air from dough & divide into 8 portions (55g each). Slightly flatten dough & wrap a piece of butter inside, sealed & place them onto baking tray.
3. Let the dough rise for 10mins, then spread the rice flour mixture on top of the dough. Rest for another 20mins. 
4. Bake in a preheated oven @ 190 degrees for 20mins. 
I am now the ambassador of my 'look alike' bread, hehehe

 Help! I am feeling dizzy when I saw my mistress eating my 'look alike' bread! Wanna faint... OMG... Call 995 please......

Hi cathy,

Very nice bread! This is called tigerbread or dutch crunch bread, it's commonly available in Nederland and Belgium. I have been looking for such a recipe for a long time! I once made it 3 years ago, but the crunch topping was not very successful.

Btw, what is kinako?
